Q: What is the best shade of lipstick as we age?

A: My advice? Go light on the lips as you age. Dark colors tend to look harsh and accentuate age spots and all those other little imperfections that you’d rather people not notice.

Here’s a tip: Take a light colored lip pencil and fill your entire lip in with it. Then, put a touch of a light pink gloss on your lips. It will give you a fresh look that you will love while not drawing attention to those imperfections you don’t love.
